Twilight on a Transylvanian Lake by 

ACRYLICS on wood panel. This is a painting inspired by a black and white photo I took in a very special place: the Astra Museum in a forest near Sibiu, Transylvania. A place where I have spent a lot of time during my youth (gone, helas!) especially during the summer vacations. The colors are mine but I did not exagerate that much. The twilight really WAS as beautiful. And the water and the grass and the summer air, still warm, could give a high to a crack addict without any drug! One of the places in memory where I return when things go bad… I sold this small painting for quite a handsome sum (otherwise I would have not sold it) and I still regret it.
